    There is no maximum it is always the same. I know this because in chess a rook can move virtically and horizontally like the ribbon moves on one side of the box. When you place a rook on any square on an empty board it can move to the same number of places. The number of places it can move to is analogous to the length of the ribbon on a given side.
